Griffon Enterprises is going to release the Nagato Yuki ( 長門有希 ) Lolita Ver. ( ロリータVer. ) 1/7 PVC figure from the light novel/anime “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”( 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 ). Will be released in January 2009. Around 245mm tall, 9,500 yen.
Since Griffon released the gothic Haruhi and Mikuru already, I know gothic Yuki is coming. Based on the illustration below, Griffon make all three of them really nicely. I like the Haruhi one the most, don’t really like this Yuki tho (I mean the illustration, not the figure). I think colorful dress doesn’t fit Yuki really well.
As for the figure, Griffon did it really well. Usually the figure can’t keep up with the original illustration at all. But this Yuki, her dress looks so much better than the illustration! Too bad her face is a little bit to thin, otherwise this figure gonna perfect IMO (other than the price XD). Ppl on BBS said she looks like a cake. I really agree. And I think she’s not only a cake, she is a really tasty cake!! =9
